    We are pleased to invite you to the presentation of the BioRegion of Catalonia Life Sciences and Healthcare Outlook 2021, promoted by Biocat, together with CataloniaBio & HealthTech and ACCIÓ in collaboration with AMGEN.

    The BioRegion Report is the benchmark study that analyzes the life sciences and healthcare sector in Catalonia. Published regularly since 2009, it is presented at an event that gathers C-level executives, KOLs and experts of the industry.
